Hi all - I am looking for simple software to draw out flowcharts, processes, etc HOWEVER all the ones I see are "Drag&Drop your boxes" only ... I am looking for one that will (for example) adjust sizes & fit the symbols in when you add new ones, instead of me having to add 1 & move 5 other boxes to make everything fit.
Could also be software where I specify how everything fits together, and the software draws it out for you.
And Macintosh compatible would be a added bonus :-)
Any ideas?

Visio 2010 actually allows you to split connectors and shift downstream flowcharts out of the way.

I've just made a blog post + video about this subject, which you can read/view here:
